On Sunday, 15th January, 5 pm (Polish House) the Irish Polish Society will have a special audio-visual event dedicated to Polish poet, the Nobel Prize winner, Czesław Miłosz (1911-2004).
The year 2011 was designated Miłosz Year to commemorate the centenary of the poet’s birth. The Irish Polish Society had already one ‘Miłosz event’ in October.The forthcoming event – concluding the Miłosz Year– takes place due to our Society’s co-operation with the Polish publishers of Miłosz’s works.
The programme includes a short documentary film, historical recordings of poetry reading, video clips from a film “The Issa Valley” (based on Miłosz’s novel), an exhibition of Miłosz’s books and other material. Some books by Miłosz (in Polish and in English translation) will be for sale; all proceeds go to the IPS.
The event will be bilingual, admission is free and everybody is welcome.
A light wine reception will be served.
